ALCOHOL (Urine):


Urine alcohol or ethanol levels may be ordered in suspected alcohol ingestion (illegally drunk or intoxicated) as well as the altered mental status of unknown etiology, coma, psychiatric emergencies, and history of other ingestions (toxic alcohol such as methanol, salicylates).

Symptoms of alcohol intoxication include confusion, lack of coordination, unsteadiness that makes it hard to stand or walk, and erratic or unsafe driving.

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) test is widely used to detect the presence of ethyl glucuronide (an end product of ethanol ingestion excreted by kidneys in urine) in urine. Most of the alcohol is processed by the liver and the rest is eliminated from the body through sweat and breath. Hence it can also be tested in blood, hair, and nails apart from urine, never less, urine is the most preferred specimen.
